I can’t eat chick peas, what can I use in place of them?

— Julia Detering


Oh gee so many different things you can use cannellini beans. You can use white navy beans. I'm not sure what you're planning to do with them. But I'm going to go back to these chickpeas for a second. And one thing that may be to think about is do you remove the skin? I'm gonna we're gonna use canned chickpeas as an example. Once you take all of the aquafaba out, you can lay them on a towel and you can rub another towel on top of it to remove the skin because the skin can sometimes be tough and make it difficult to digest so that might be something for you to think about catalinis have a much softer skin. However, if you wanted to make a hummus appearance wise it would look almost the same.
